Career Opportunities in STEM & MORE for High School and Community College women – A panel of professional women will share details of their daily work life including their varied paths to success.

Planning for College – We once again hosted, on ZOOM, two Planning For College presentations during October. Diane Keller, a former college consultant, presented essentials for young women and their parents considering applying to college. Thank you to all who joined! Stay tuned for next year’s events.
Membership – Renew your Membership if you missed the fall drive. Your AAUW branch membership has been vital in helping advance gender and racial equity during this challenging time. The pandemic has been particularly devastating for women and people of color, but with your support we’ve pushed for much-needed COVID relief and paid-leave benefits, expanded voting access and education, and published important research on student debt and the power gap in colleges and universities. We rely on members like you to help us meet the challenges today’s women and girls face–and build a brighter future for everyone. Questions or more information, contact our membership chair.
Members, please note that the branch newsletter, The Grapevine, comes to your email inbox from the address firstname.lastname@example.org. The newsletter will be attached. Please open it up and enjoy all of the valuable information inside.
